The Imaginary Horizon.

© Sérgio Spritzer, 2021


It doesn't seem by chance that looking at a physical horizon has fascinated human beings since the beginning. Even at the beginning of the story, even nomadic wanderers felt safer at the top of a mountain than at the bottom of a valley. Seeing the sunrise or sunset than inside a cave or currently inside a cubicle.


The horizon line appears similarly on the mental plane when people talk about any subject even to laugh with the unexpected effect of a joke, a joke, one has to draw a horizon in the narrative and be surprised.


The future is on the horizon like a horizontal line that equals everyone on the same plane. What point do you want to reach (this horizon)?


This is the way of thinking when a narrative is going on as if it were a body moving in some direction. Even not knowing where they are going to arrive, it is necessary to know a horizon. Lovers aim at the same horizon. In a team, people look to the same goal, which are not behaviors but a world of relationships to be pursued like a line on the horizon.


When one person isn't getting to the point of understanding the other, one of them uses the expression: You're not looking at the same horizon as I am. The disappointment of not realizing that they are facing the same horizon can make a conversation towards dialogue unfeasible.
